Beth Syverson is an adoptive mom of a 20-year-old son Joey, who has been struggling to find his healing path for the past several years because of addiction and suicidality. They created the Unraveling Adoption podcast together in 2021 to help other families struggling with similar issues. Beth also runs a free support group for adoptive parents called APtitude, and she recently became a Certified Coach, working primarily with adoptive parents. Through the podcast, support group, coaching, and events, she hopes to help adoptive parents become more self-aware and to work on their own issues so they can become more emotionally attuned parents. And she hopes to raise awareness about adoption trauma to the wider community. Beth speaks out on the topics of addiction, adoption, mental health, and parenting in order to help families heal. Find out more at Contact Beth at
